Roma gave up the lead to eventually lose 3-1.
â€śThis game must be taken for what it is, the first test of the season,â€ť shrugged De Rossi. â€śItâ€™s disappointing, as we were playing well and the match was on the right track for us.
â€śIn any case, if we manage to play like we did in the first half for an entire 90 minutes, then weâ€™ll win many games.â€ť
Jeremy Menez also agreed that Roma put in a decent performance against the Nerazzurri.
â€śWe were facing the reigning champions of Europe, so we didnâ€™t do too badly,â€ť said the Frenchman.
â€śMore than Inter winning it, we were the ones who threw it away. We paid a heavy price for some mistakes and also failed to make the most of our scoring opportunities.â€ť
